An adaptation of the novel by **Zana Fraillon** by award-winning playwright **S. Shakthidharan**.

Subhi is a refugee. Born in an Australian permanent detention centre after his mother fled the violence of a distant homeland, life behind the fences is all he has ever known. But as he grows, his imagination gets bigger too, until it is bursting at the limits of his world. The Night Sea brings him gifts, the faraway whales sing to him, and the birds tell their stories.

One night, Jimmie, a scruffy, impatient girl appears from the other side of the wires, and brings a notebook written by the mother she lost. Unable to read it, she relies on Subhi to unravel her own family’s mysterious and moving history.

Subhi and Jimmie might both find a way to freedom as their tales unfold. But not until each of them has been braver than ever before.

Pilot Theatre won **Excellence in Touring **at the 2019 UK Theatre Awards.  Pilot’s renowned work for young audiences (Noughts and Crosses, Crongton Knights) is fully supported by a range of learning resources.
